As a Direct Payment user where can I get access to PPE? – Updated 24/4/2020

If you are a Direct Payments Service User and require access to PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) during the Covid-19 crisis, please see further information below from each individual Trust in Northern Ireland:

 

Advice Note – Northern Health and Social Care Trust:

Covid-19 Guidance for Employers of Personal Assistants – Access to PPE

For Personal Assistant employers in the NSCT area the most direct route to arrange for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is to contact your Key Worker (or Social Worker) who can arrange the appropriate PPE for you. If your care is provided by an independent organisation (a domiciliary care provider), their PPE needs are being supplied to them by the Trust. Alternatively, you should email partnerhub@northerntrust.hscni.net , explain you are a Personal Assistant employer using Direct Payments and give your telephone number. A member of the Partner Hub Team will then get in touch with you either by phone or by email to discuss your needs and provide the appropriate equipment on an ongoing basis. If you experience any difficulty using this service then contact CILNI Advice Service.
